Personal tax compliance

Our team of personal tax accountants provide a bespoke service with the objective of improving your financial position by ensuring you’re paying the right amount of tax and seeking reliefs where they are available.

Not everyone takes proper advice to ensure they only pay what they are legally obliged to while maintaining tax compliance. There are also benefits and reliefs that may not be explored as individuals are unaware of them.

We will work with you to unlock these opportunities and structure your affairs in a way that is tax efficient, whether your assets are located in the UK or involve assets such as property abroad.

Rigorous planning and regular reviews are at the heart of our approach – our service extends beyond the preparation of personal tax returns as we leave no stone unturned in considering the full implications of your personal and business circumstances.

Personal tax enquiries

If HM Revenue and Customs (HMRC) decide to investigate an individual’s tax return, it can be a highly stressful and uncertain time.

Each year, HMRC carries out a wide range of tax enquiries to ensure the right amount of tax has been paid. Its stringent process has recovered billions in additional tax revenue in recent years, achieved by targeting individuals using increasingly sophisticated software.

HMRC tax enquiries and investigations can be random or selective and have the aim of assessing whether a taxpayer has paid the right amount of tax.

With their in-depth knowledge of the investigative process, our specialist advisers can support you through any investigation, ensuring that you’re compliant, have all the facts and can secure the best possible outcome.
